come on now and see the course
that never fields the game of choice
and cold allies of steel
couldn't buy the way it feels
rusty and divided steel
the race is yet to come

    General CommentThis song is about an impending apocalypse. Once we learn the powers of "mind over matter", we are imbued with a beautiful responsibility to avoid today's ignorant society--or, perhaps as tempting, to unlock the minds of today's ignorant society. Robert Pollard warns us that technology is not going to aid us in the Final Battle. Becoming anthropomorphic--a hypothesis which would only become relevant in the notion of spirituality--may very well be the solution. Or the winners may watch the battle from a distance, and practice preaching philanthropy and Goodness to survive and help a few others survive. And the devoutly religious will learn to blissfully accept their deathly fate.
